The Gathering

Gene and Judi showed up at Cedars of Lebanon around one thirty.  We sat and chatted for about an hour catching up on each other’s happenings since our last get together in Maine way back in August.  Then it was time to hit the trail heading for The Gathering at Defeated Creek Campground in Carthage, Tennessee.

A whole herd of Escapees has descended on Middle Tennessee.  No, there wasn’t a prison break although you may think so after you see some of the pictures. 

Anywhoo, before arriving at Defeated Creek we made a stop at the Tater Knob Overlook which “overlooks” Lake Cordell Hull.  This is a man made lake created when the Corps of Engineers dammed the Cumberland River in Smith County.

Here’s a picture of Judi and Gene that Judy took while I took a picture of her taking the picture.  Didcha follow all that?

We arrived at “The Gathering” right on time.  People were showing up and food was coming out – ya can’t have a Fulltimer’s gathering without food and drink!!!  There are a lot of pictures so just place your cursor over the picture for the caption.

It was a great evening, as it always is whenever a group of RVers gather for a Social Time and/or Happy Hour.  Here’s a couple of pictures of a beautiful ending to a beautiful day.

Have I ever told you that one of the best parts of this lifestyle is the people you meet and the friends you make?  We have lots and lots and lots of friends – waaaay more than when we lived in stix and brix!!!

Well, in the words of Jenny’s dad - “That’s it for today!”
